The Liley Medal honours the outstanding contributions made by Sir William Liley while at the National Women’s hospital in Auckland.

The Liley Medal is for a research contribution from the previous calendar year. Authors must have permission for dissemination from the publisher. The eligible work must also have been carried out and published while the health researcher was predominantly in New Zealand. An accumulated body of work to mark a career contribution over a number of years does not meet the criteria for the award. Nominees (individuals or team) are eligible to receive the Liley Medal more than once, with a 5-year stand down period following receipt of award. Current HRC Council members are not eligible to receive the award while in post.

Current status

If you have any queries about making a nomination for this award please email Dr Katie Palastanga.
